History

Atlante played in San Alejo, La Unión. The club was previously called Guardia Nacional however in the 1955-1956 season they changed their name to AD Atlante after they won promotion to the country's top tier.[1] The club team name derived because of the location's nearby shore, although, La Unión is a port city on the Pacific Ocean, not the Atlantic Ocean.

Atlante never won a national title in El Salvador. However, they did manage to finish second in the 1956-1957 national regular season league, and runners-up again in 1962. In 1970 they relegated to the second division.
